The DCE for the Bolgatanga East District of the Upper East Region, David Amoah has explained that the Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia remains the best option if the NPP’s aspirations of breaking the eight is to be realised.
Speaking with Mark Smith on the Day Break Upper East Show recently, Mr. Amoah explained that the country at this moment needs the expertise of the Vice President to help transition the country from the current economic doldrums.
Additionally, Mr. Amoah explained that because of the weighty support for the Vice President, the NDC remains fearful and as such, continually seeks to throw mud at the Vice President’s character.
“The Vice President has what it takes and it cuts across every sector. He is the most attractive person that can let us break the eight. If you can feel the political heat in Ghana now, you would realise the NDC throwing mud at the Vice President. But this mud is so smooth that it doesn’t stick. They would throw and it would drop. When you have a smooth surface, mud cannot stick. The Vice President is like that.”
“They [the NDC] know it. Why are they singling out that fair, gentle, hardworking, energetic and brilliant young man to be throwing jabs at him? He gives them sleepless nights. The entire NDC, from the executives to the grassroot level, are shivering because they know that he is coming. They know they cannot stop him. He is going to be like a tsunami and sweep them away,” he explained.
